    Psychoanalyst, teacher, and scholar, Heinz Kohut was one of the twentieth century's most important intellectuals. A rebel according to many mainstream psychoanalysts, Kohut challenged Freudian orthodoxy and the medical control of psychoanalysis in America. In his highly influential book The Analysis of the Self, Kohut established the industry standard of the treatment of personality disorders for a generation of analysts. This volume, best known for its groundbreaking analysis of narcissism, is essential reading for scholars and practitioners seeking to understand human personality in its many incarnations. “Kohut has done for narcissism what the novelist Charles Dickens did for poverty in the nineteenth century. Everyone always knew that both existed and were a problem. . . . The undoubted originality is to have put it together in a form which carries appeal to action.”—International Journal of Psychoanalysis

    Most psychotherapists agree that the body and mind are closely interconnected. Indeed, "mind/body connections" have become buzzwords, and practitioners of all kinds are keen to familiarize themselves with them. However, to date, many psychotherapists have focused solely on the mind, ignoring the "hardware" of what they are working with: the human body.In Anatomy & Physiology for Psychotherapists, Kathrin Stauffer---a biochemist and seasoned body psychotherapist---takes a look at organ systems of the human body to illuminate the connections between body and mind, exploring the body as both the ground of our physical experience and as a metaphor for our emotional life.Throughout, Stauffer presents human anatomy and physiology in clear, simple terms, with facts selected for interest and relevance to psychotherapists. Many links are made between physical and psychological function to give readers a taste. of how body psychotherapists work in clinical practice to integrate body and mind, and thus help their clients become more whole.Anatomy & Physiology for Psychotberapists invites psychotherapists, complementary therapists, and anyone else interested in the mind/body connection to engage with the physical body to bring more depth to their therapeutic work."My first reaction to this book is, `WOW!' Scientist-turned-psychotherapist Kathrin Stauffer makes a major contribution towards a unifying theory of body and mind in this highly accessible volume. It is essential reading for all psychotherapists and body psychotherapists who desire to apply the wisdom of science for the purpose of gaining a deeper understanding of and greater compassion for their clients as well as themselves."--- Babette Rothschild, MSW, Author, The Body Remembers and 8 Keys to Safe Trauma Recovery"Anatomy & Physiology for Psychotherapists is a wonderfully readable overview of the main organ systems of the body, in language that a non-specialist can understand. Stauffer explains the functions of the body in ways that are relevant to our insights into the relation between psyche and soma. The book is rich with principles taken from body psychotherapy (Reich, Boyesen, Boadella, Keleman and others), and clearly presents the functional identity of body and mind. Each chapter is enriched with clear case examples taken from actual practice."---Divid Boadella, MEd, Dr. H.C., Founder of Biosynthesis, Author, Lifestreams

    Although generally considered adult disorders, anxiety and depression are widespread among children and adolescents, affecting academic performance, social development, and long-term outcomes. They are also difficult to treat and, especially when they occur in tandem, tend to fly under the diagnostic radar.Anxiety and Depression in Children and Adolescents offers a developmental psychology perspective for understanding and treating these complex disorders as they manifest in young people. Adding the school environment to well-known developmental contexts such as biology, genetics, social structures, and family, this significant volume provides a rich foundation for study and practice by analyzing the progression of pathology and the critical role of emotion regulation in anxiety disorders, depressive disorders, and in combination. Accurate diagnostic techniques, appropriate intervention methods, and empirically sound prevention strategies are given accessible, clinically relevant coverage. Illustrative case examples and an appendix of forms and checklists help make the book especially useful. Featured in the text: Developmental psychopathology of anxiety, anxiety disorders, depression, and mood disorders. Differential diagnosis of the anxiety and depressive disorders. Assessment measures for specific conditions. Age-appropriate interventions for anxiety and depression, including CBT and pharmacotherapy. Multitier school-based intervention and community programs. Building resilience through prevention.Anxiety and Depression in Children and Adolescents is an essential reference for practitioners, researchers, and graduate students in school and clinical child psychology, mental health and school counseling, family therapy, psychiatry, social work, and education.
